Kung Pao!

(Okay, so you know it's been pretty boring around here when the most exciting thing I can find to post about in over a week is going to be what I made for dinner tonight.) Seriously, it's just been cold and snowy, cold and snowy, cold and snowy... I go to work, come home and stay home - it's been too cold to think about going anywhere or doing anything. We did have some relief yesterday - temps got up into the 20s, so Mary and I took the twins to see "The Spiderwick Chronicles" (, and then I went over to her house for chili. Still, I was home and in bed by 8:00 pm (OK, I was awake, for God's sake, just watching TV). I went to work early this morning and literally spent all day re-doing the safety cable program - well, half of it at least - I'll finish the rest tomorrow. I came home absolutely wiped out!

Which brings me to dinner... My newest find is in the Chinese food section at your local grocery store: Wanchai Ferry Chinese Cuisine (! Okay, so it's one of those 'just-add-meat-dinner-in-a-box' deals, BUT, after all, I am a working single gal and it is really, really good! The kung pao came with jasmine rice, peanuts, the little red chilis and a packet of sauce that is 'burn your lips off' spicy! Prep time is about 20 minutes and it made plenty of food. Delish!

Now, with a full tummy, I must head for a hot shower, a cozy bed and a warm Beagle to snuggle with while I watch the Super Bowl of Entertainment, The Oscars. Good night, sleep tight!

The recipe kits have just been launched in the UK - they're very handy as they have all the sauces and dry ingredients in them to add to chicken, or pork or tofu, and you've got a complete recipe!
